Is this in East Asia

As I've said before, it is not in Asia.

Is it the reconstruction of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge?

Nope.

Is that in the US? Germany? That appears to be a relatively large river, the picture appears to be taken on a very high bluff above the river.

Not in US (or N.America whatsoever) Not in Germany too. It is a rel.large river and the shot is taken from the hill.

Well well, this is the first time you didn't get it from the first shot ;-)

Nope.

This is a view from 115m (~60% of current height). Original photo was taken from the hills in the background.

No, Millau has opened for traffic six years ago. This one is still under construction.

I corrected your link for everyone to see that you were right :-)
First pic was taken with the cellphone, hence the bad quality. On the last picture you can actually find the building where I live. Such a great view of the construction site. With 202m pylon it'll be among dozen tallest bridges in the world.

Here's one to look at. Yes, it's real. If you recognise this architect's work, it won't be too hard to find the name of this building.

I think that is very close to my mark, in fact it may be a winner?

Sorry but this one is too obvious for those who watch Discovery channel too much :-) It's strange that DirkVW missed this one.

That'll be it! I've never seen any of his buildings on TV, but we have one locally: the Stata Center at MIT. When it was built, many locals thought it was just horrid.
